With the NBA season just about a month away, numerous teams throughout the NBA are unveiling their highly-anticipated City Edition jerseys. One of the first teams to do so were the Los Angeles Lakers, who are taking their team all the way back to 1960. Meanwhile, teams like the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder also showed off their new jerseys, and for the most part, fans were satisfied with what they saw.

Now, the Boston Celtics are getting into the City Edition spirit as they recently took to Twitter to show off their brand new uniforms. As you will see in the tweets below, the jerseys are inspired by the numerous team banners the franchise has in their arena. Of course, the Celtics have 17 NBA titles and this history has led to the jerseys you see below.
